Trump scrubs his website of statement bragging about Afghanistan withdrawal plan
Donald Trump, the former president, published several statements about Afghanistan on his personal website, including one bragging about his efforts to pull all U.S. troops out of Afghanistan. As recently as April Trump wrote that pulling all U.S. troops "out of Afghanistan is a wonderful and positive thing to do. I planned to withdraw [from Afghanistan] on May 1, and we should keep as close to that schedule as possible."
That post, as well as others that mention Afghanistan, have been scrubbed from Trump's website in the past few days.
